7:01 am
>> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. >> and welcome to "today" on a monday morning, it's martin luther king day. good morning, i'm savannah guthrie. >> and i'm carson daly. alongside dylan dreyer and natalie morales. matt and al have the morning off. super bowl xlviii, the stage is set here in new york. >> and now that the polar vortex not come back. >> i know. hopefully we're in the clear from that. >> 49ers/broncos, everybody happy with the match-up? >> no. >> patriots lost, i'm not happy at all. >> trying to make dylan cry. >> congratulations, seattle. >> rivalry. >> yeah. more on this big game coming up, today's top story. and it's a video that's surfaced from a terror group vowing to strike during the winter olympics in sochi. with 17 days to go now, is russian security ready?
7:02 am
and why are u.s. officials complaining about a lack of cooperation? let's get right to nbc's chief foreign correspondent richard engel in moscow this morning. good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. russian officials say they have security under control. but this latest threat does seem credible. and russian security forces are searching for one woman in particular who's gone missing whom they worried could be involved in an attack on the games. >> reporter: the olympic torch passed today in the city of volgograd. around the world relay closing in on sochi. but terror groups are eyeing these olympics, too. a new threat has emerged from the very same suicide bombers. both now dead who attacked
7:03 am
volgograd, over the new year. in their claim, last testimony, the young men documented how they've prepared for the attack step by step. and some time later, those men, the video claimed, killed dozens of civilians at a train station and on a bus. volgograd was just the first wave. the next attacks will bring, quote, a surprise to the olympics. security in sochi is already tighter than at most airports. president vladimir putin has said security is a national priority and that every resource will be used. but on the sunday talk shows, there's been a chorus of concerns and complaints. >> they've now moved some 30,000 armed troops down to the region. that tells you that their level of concern is great, but we don't seem to be getting all the information we need to protect our athletes in the games. i think this needs to change. and it should change soon. >> i would not go. and i don't think i would send my family. >> but why attack the olympics? mostly revenge. russia is fighting a low-level
7:04 am
war in the caucuses. awe muslim majority territory. a territory less than 1,000 miles from sochi. the republic of dagastan is especially violent. and that's where the suicide bombers say they're from. the winter olympics aren't really the target, russia is. the games, analysts say, are just an opportunity to grab attention, and to try to harm vladimir putin. >> reporter: security is only one point of u.s./russia tension. another, of course, is edward snowden, the nsa leaker who now lives in russia with some u.s. officials suggesting he had help from russia. other officials say he acted alone. >> richard, thank you very much. here at home, another blast of the dangerous cold is heading back to the midwest and northeast. dylan, dare we say it? the polar vortex part ii? >> it is another polar vortex. we're going to see it set up shop and weaken a little bit. we are looking at normally a
7:05 am
nice, compact vortex up through the north pole. but what happens is, it's going to weaken over the next couple of days, it allows the jet stream to dip very far to the south, and we get a taste of what is normally located up near the north pole. this is not going to be as cold as last time because the heart of it is going to stay up across canada. we are going to see the jet stream dip down to the south and produce very much below normal temperatures. in fact, we will even see below normal temps extend as far south as florida. chicago on tuesday, about ten degrees, 23 in new york city, minneapolis, about three, and we're looking at 38 degrees in atlanta and 56 in orlando, 16 degrees below average. not as bad as last time, but it is going to be brutally cold tuesday into wednesday, too. bundle up. >> great. dylan, thank you. we'll get a check of the rest of the forecast in a moment. on to a big story out of iran. well the u.n. nuclear agencies
7:06 am
is confirming that iran has halted the sensitive enrichment uranium work as part of the landmark deal it struck. nbc's andrea mitchell has the latest. >> good morning, natalie. the u.n. inspectors are reporting today that iran has indeed complied with the ground-breaking commitment to stop enriching uranium for nuclear fuel. inspectors are now in iran, basically unplugging nuclear equipment at key facilities. european foreign ministers, now, are meeting already in brussels this morning to approve an easing of sanctions on iran immediately. the u.s. is expected to follow suit. in all, about $7 billion of $100 billion of sanctions will be eased for six months while iran and the west try to work out a permanent deal. on another front, the u.n. has overnight invited iran to take part in peace talks in switzerland. the u.s. objects to iran joining the talks until it commits to
7:07 am
the removal of president assad. if iran does come to these talks, the syrian opposition may boycott the meeting. >> andrea mitchell following all the developments in washington this morning. thank you. there's breaking news out of iraq this morning where half a dozen bomb blasts killed at least 21 people and wounded 58 in baghdad. the bloodiest attack happened in the abujeer district. the southern part of the iraqi capital. a car bomb near a crowded market killed seven people and wounded 18. an american held captive in north korea spoke out this morning. missionary kenneth bae appeared under guard in pyongjong. he directly asked the u.s. government to help secure his release. clashes in ukraine's capital intensified overnight injuring several people, police buses were set on fire in the city's center. a group of radical activists attacked riot police with sticks to try to make their way toward
7:08 am
the parliament building. violence is part of a two-month crisis in the country. after the president chose to freeze ties with the european union and pursue a bailout from russia. heavy damage reported in new zealand this morning after a strong earthquake there. and this eagle sculpture inspired by "the hobbit" film came crashing down at the airport after the 6.2 magnitude quake. the tremor was strong enough to do damage to homes and buildings. and a dramatic rescue sunday after a man and his dog fell through the ice of a missouri lake. and take a look, you can see how firefighters were able to crawl toward the victim. rescuers say they've been practicing this move for this exact situation for months now. sunday, did you see, they had to put the skills to the test. the rescue complicated by the fact the victim was deaf and had his hearing aid had shorted out. eventually, they pulled the man out of the water and the dog was able to get out on his own. both of them are expected to be
7:09 am
okay. thank goodness they trained for situations like that. >> paid off. >> certainly did. >> all right, ms. polar vortex, what else is going on? >> polar vortex in one part of the country, got to be warm somewhere. >> where? >> out west. >> yes. >> and not too far west, oklahoma into texas where temperatures are going to stay above average. we have this ridge in the jet stream that is kind of the opposite of the dip in the jet stream the east coast is seeing. this is always a good thing if you want sunny, dry weather. of course, california could really use a break from this pattern and start to get some rain in the area. but, unfortunately, this high pressure's going to stay in control for at least the foreseeable future. temperatures running about 10 to 15 degrees above average and no end in sight to that. that's a look at the weather across the country, your local forecast coming up in 30 seconds. it's not the "fumbling around with rotating categories" card. it's not the "getting blindsided by limits" card. it's the no-game-playing, no-earning-limit-having,
7:10 am
deep-bomb-throwing, give-me-the-ball-and-i'll-take- it-to-the-house, cash back card. this is the quicksilver cash card from capital one. unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, everywhere, every single day. so let me ask you... what's in your wallet? hey there, good morning to you. what a pretty day. maybe you have the day off as we honor the reverend dr. martin luther king jr. it's going to be beautiful out there. san jose showing you a pretty sun rise. we're coming off two spare the air days. we're at 30. 38 to start in the south bay. headed to comfortable conditions above average but nice as you hit the beach. 71 in san francisco. 73 in the south bay and 71 degrees in the east bay. >> and that is your latest forecast. all right. >> dylan, thank you so much. now to new jersey and a new controversy facing governor
7:11 am
chris christie. the mayor of hoboken, new jersey, met with federal prosecutors on sunday after she claimed over the weekend that the governor's office conditioned hurricane sandy relief funds to her support of a separate redevelopment project. nbc's kelly o'donell is in new jersey. >> reporter: good morning. the governor spoke at a firehouse here making her first statements about the allegations denying she did not give sandy relief. this is at a time of past the bridge traffic jam. christie coming and going from republican fund raisers this weekend. one supportive ally, the democratic mayor of hoboken made a series of tv appearances
7:12 am
against christie's administration. >> not fair for the governor to hold sandy funds hostages because he wants to give back to one private developer. >> reporter: she met at several hours at their request with the attorney's office and promised to provide any requested information and testify under oath. zimmer claims the funds will be held. >> pulled my in the parking lot and she said if you tell anyone, i'll deny it. >> reporter: christie's office rejected the allegations. and said they are false. he said hoboken received $70 million in aid. more relief money is expected. further adding the $100 million
7:13 am
that zimmer requested was for future flood control. christie's supporters pointed out that zimmer has changed her story. >> mayor zimmer said she didn't believe any hold up in the funds had anything to do with any kind of retribution for not endorsing the governor. >> zimmer explained why she had not come forward sooner. >> i didn't think anyone would believe me. i really didn't. >> reporter: and the lieutenant governor says all the facts will come out. she says she is committed to the relief for hoboken. she says the version by the mayor does not square with her memory. she said there was no putting together of sandy relief and developing. this sis a changing story. savannah. >> thank you. let's bring in former republican congressman joe scarborough host of msnbc's "morning joe." >> good morning. >> the facts of this are pretty complex. how does it strike you?
7:14 am
do you think this is a credible claim? or do you look at this as political enemies starting to smell blood in the water and piling on? >> you know, i think it's politics 101. unfortunately, you see it in washington and around the country where somebody's sitting at 65% approval ratings and you're a mayor and you want things for your town, you sit there and smile and tweet like she did. chris christie, he's a great guy and great guy for new jersey. when the investigators start swirling around and there's blood in the water, you then reveal in your diary that you wept like a child, that you were heartbroken there wasn't a santa claus after all and that chris christie ran a corrupted administration. this isn't especially shocking. i will tell you, it is especially troubling for chris christie's future, political career. a month ago around here we were talking about how he was going to get conservatives on his side to be the next president of the united states. but now the questions are being asked around the table off-air. is he going to survive the next year as governor of new jersey? these are tough, tough times for
7:15 am
chris christie. >> as he's in this survival mode, we saw a different tact from him. aggressively pushing back from the hoboken mayor's claim. not just on the fact of the story, but the net or that broke the story, msnbc. chris christie's spokesperson said msnbc is a partisan network that's been almost gleeful in their efforts attacking him. i know governor christie's a frequent guest on your show. what do you make of that allegation? >> they're obviously not talking about "morning joe" because john heilemann calls our show good morning, trenton, because we love chris christie so much around here. but listen, you can attack the network if you want to, there are a lot of people that go after him gleefully, that's not shocking. but here's the bottom line, you can push back against whatever network you want to push back against. the lieutenant governor needs to come out today and say what was said about her in the parking lot was a lie. and if she can't do that,
7:16 am
they've got a real problem. and i suspect if the u.s. attorney's being talked to, she's going to have to say that under oath. this is chris christie's biggest problem. if chris christie is not telling the truth, are there 15 people going to perjure themselves for chris christie, close aides, the person that was going to run the new jersey republican party that ran his campaign? we said it before, if chris christie's telling the truth, he'll be fine. and if he's not telling the truth, he won't survive. none of us know the answer to those questions. but certainly, this weekend was just sort of one more story. and this unfolding story that makes a lot of republican donors. and this is a big political story here nationwide starting to scratch their heads going, is this guy really our best chance to beat hillary clinton in 2016? i think more and more people are waking up to this news saying, no. >> you'll be talking around your table as well as ours, good to get your perspective. thank you. >> thanks a lot.
7:17 am
appreciate it, savannah. >> new jersey is in the spotlight for another reason this morning. we know who will face off in super bowl xlviii. "today's" jenna wolfe has the story. >> that's right. the table is officially set. the guests, the denver broncos and the seattle seahawks as the best of the west come east for the biggest game of the season. the first super bowl ever held in the big apple -- well, new jersey to be exact. >> reporter: welcome to the wild, wild west. two western division power houses, the denver broncos and the seattle seahawks booked their tickets to the super bowl sunday night. >> picked off. this game is over. >> reporter: behind two plush performances from peyton manning and russell wilson. 37-year-old manning threw for a whopping 400 yards en route to knocking off tom brady's patriots, 26-16. the seasoned veteran making his
7:18 am
third trip to the super bowl in his storied career. his first appearance, though, in a broncos uniform. >> what a heck of a day for football. unbelievable weather. playing a great team. >> kaepernick -- >> reporter: what a night cap in seattle. niners and seahawks, san francisco's colin kaepernick using his legs. >> going to be tripped up at the ten. >> reporter: -- and arms. >> caught for the touchdown! >> reporter: -- to put the 49ers up early. but seattle fired back, the go ahead touchdown pass on a gutsy fourth down call. >> and in the end zone, the pass caught for the touchdown! >> reporter: and the loudest fans in the league, seattle's famed 12th man into euphoria. >> the relationship between this football team and the 12th man in the stands. it's unbelievable. >> reporter: the two big wins set the stage for a huge game in two weeks. >> super bowl xlviii in new
7:19 am
jersey. >> wondering if this is going to be a good match-up? it's only the second time in the last 20 super bowls that the afc regular season champ and the nfc regular season champ will meet to play to become the nfl champ. i'm going to go with, yes, this is going to be a fun one. show up in shorts, you'll be fine. >> predicting the weather, as well. i hope she's right. thank you so much, jenna. well, carson's here. so who is there? jenna bush-hager taking over the orange room this morning. >> hi, guys. another jenna, i hope that doesn't confuse anybody. but like jenna said, there was a lot of excitement between that seahawks and 49ers game. but there was one interview that has everybody talking. richard sherman said some very honest things about michael crabtree after the game. let's see it. >> thank you so much. richard, let me ask you the final play.
7:20 am
take me through it. >> well, i'm the best corner in the game. that's the result you're going to get. don't you ever talk about me! >> who was talking about you? >> crabtree. don't you open your mouth about the best. they'll stand up on you quick. >> that had everybody talking online. michael crabtree -- uh-oh, of course, malfunction, malfunction. >> brittany, help her out. >> there we go. i did it the wrong way. first time. michael crabtree said film don't lie. pull up the tape of that game and show me where this guy is the best? #fake. am i doing it wrong? i need some help, carson. >> there was a lot of talk before the game, now i'm the bad guy, lol, you judge my character on the field, so many glass houses.
7:21 am
we have fans talking, of course. richard sherman is an embarrassment to his team, poor sportsmanship and zero class. thanks so much, guys. >> i think poor erin andrews was scared to death in that interview. >> she was right in there. >> what are you talking about exactly? >> be more specific. all right. coming up, lost in translation, the controversial comment that has the bachelor apologizing this morning. and perhaps the changing of the guard at buckingham palace. why prince charles is taking over some of the queen's official duties. but first, this is "today" on nb

7:33 am

"you're the last person to make moral judgments on people, you're dating 25 women at the same time." juan pablo galavis posted an apology on facebook writing, "pervert" wasn't what he meant to say. "everyone knows english is my second language," he wrote. "and because of this, sometimes i use the wrong words to express myself." >> i want to say a few words. >> reporter: "duck dynasty's" phil robertson was under fire how he expressed himself last month in "gq" magazine. a firestorm that got him briefly suspended from the show. ratings for that show's season premiere were down 28%. it's hard to say if the controversy played a role. as for the bachelor, he's already promising to meet with gay and lesbian families telling glaad, "i want them to know i'm on their side." >> i think this, too, will pass, and at the end of the day, i think he's doing the right thing and will be forgiven. >> reporter: in response to the apology, glaad says it looks forward to working with juan pablo and wants to educate his

7:35 am
for this afternoon. but there is rain in the forecast. 74 degrees today along the peninsula, 71 san francisco and 73 degrees in the north bay for today. so showers aren't expected until next week. we have a major pattern change headed our way. cooler weather and we bring in the rain tuesday through friday of next week so keep that in mind. enjoy these warm conditions as long as they last. temperatures climb to 70 degrees out in ocean beach. british royal family seen by some as the first step in transitioning prince charles to take over as king. nbc's michelle kosinski is at buckingham palace. michel michel michelle, good morning. >> reporter: it's not as if the queen has any intention of stepping down from her 62-year reign with charles the longest waiting heir in history. but looks like he's about to gain an even higher profile. how many people does it take to

or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto with aspirin products, nsaids, or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto if you have abnormal bleeding. xarelto can cause bleeding, which can be serious and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto is not for patients with artificial heart valves. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto. once-a-day xarelto means no regular blood monitoring -- no known dietary restrictions. for more information and savings options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com. and five simple whole grains, new multigrain cheerios dark chocolate crunch is breakfast... with benefits.

8:11 am
and i've told my daughters, i think it's a bad idea, a waste of time, and not very healthy. >> ignited a lot of debate with that, though, right? >> literally. >> well, speaking of the obamas, 500 guests helped the first lady celebrate her 50th birthday on saturday night. sources say the star-studded bash turned into a late-night dance party. beyonce was there, sang "single ladies" and later posted these photos of the trip with her daughter blue ivy. other guests, bill and hillary clinton, paul mccartney. but, perhaps the biggest name of all, our own al roker. al, from the phone, the party went until 3:00 a.m., al, are you recovered? >> well, i've got to tell you, it was -- first of all, it was like -- it was literally a house party. a house party that happened to be in the white house. my wife deborah and i went. and there were all these stars, which was kind of terrific. but there were a lot of friends.
8:12 am
in fact, for a while there, i thought who are all these kids? and turns out sasha and malia had invited a lot of their friends. there were a lot of young people around. >> sounds cool. >> but literally at one point, a while -- beyonce was performing, paul mccartney was talking or kind of grooving with stevie wonder. and i thought, oh, my gosh, ebony and ivory right there. unbelievable. >> sounds like celebrities there, al. did you and joe biden do like a conga line or anything like that? >> i did see the vice president and dr. biden. that was almost bizarre about this, everybody was casual. there's the president wearing a sport coat and shirt and open shirt and so was joe biden. but i actually got to boogie a little with the first lady. >> wow. >> deborah and i were dancing and all of a sudden i turned
8:13 am
around and there was mrs. obama, and she was dancing with sasha. and that's what was kind of cool about it. here's like a mom and her daughter just kind of grooving, having a good time. and thinking, oh, my gosh, i'm dancing with the first lady. >> good stuff, al. thank you very much. >> all right, guys. >> glad you have a great time, al. >> okay. take care. see you tomorrow. >> all right. and the oscar ares still afew weeks away. and some say the best way to predict the winner is to look at the s.a.g. awards. and "american hustle" won the top prize. the that major acting wins went to matthew mcconaughey and cate blanchett. matthew went a little long in his acceptance speech. >> that doesn't always happen, but when it does and you feel like they could put a blindfold on you and take you in a spaceship and take you to neptune. >> been in a film industry for a long time, 29 seconds, matthew

well, that's "what's trending today." we've seen lena dunham's photos for vogue. she's known for "girls." but it's a series of photos that have her the center of controversy this morning. and katie, good morning to you. >> good morning, savannah. this was pretty minor, slimming here, smoothing here and cover-up along the chest. but when it's the body positive lena dunham, some are saying there's a disconnect. >> lena dunham certainly looks beautiful suggestively perched on the edge of a bathtub, but does she look like lena dunham? within two hours of posting a $10,000 reward for the untouched images, the website jezebel got what looked to be their answer. >> they lengthened her legs, slenderized her neck, brought her jaw in. >> the problem according jezebel is dunham is the poster girl for being real. on her hbo show "girls," she not
8:16 am
only embraces but flaunts her quote, unquote imperfections. >> they take her and hide these imperfections we knew were there. doesn't make a lot of sense. >> for years, jezebel has made a mission of outing photo shop fashion images, most famous was faith hill's "redbook" cover. since then, the fashion industry as a whole has been criticized for its unrealistic portrayal of women. in just 37 seconds, this youtube video shows how much photo shop can alter appearances. not to mention recent covers where," elle" showed just a portrait of mindy kaling. they didn't respond directly to the dunham criticism but wrote in part, lena is a strong, confident woman who charts her own path and makes her an
8:17 am
inspiring role model and a perfect cover for our february issue. as for dunham herself, she says she's not sure what all the fuss is about, saying, i haven't been keeping track of all the reactions, but i know some people have been very angry about the cover and that confuses me a little. i don't understand why. photoshop or no, having a whom who is different from the typical "vogue" cover girl could be a bad thing. >> now jezebel itself is coming under fire. some calling the bounty of $10,000 a witch hunt. and considering how minor the changes were, they were trying to create a controversy where there really wasn't one. >> all right. thank you so much. let's turn to steve a media analyst and author of "you are the brand." and robin silverman. good morning to both of you. >> good morning, savannah. >> seems like we see these all the time. there's outrage and then outrage about the outrage. where do you come down on this? do you think "vogue" deserves scorn or credit for putting a
8:18 am
real woman on the cover? >> well, goes both ways. you have two brands, savannah, they're like smashing into each other. one brand you've got lena dunham who says, look, be yourself, embrace your body the way it is. but the problem is, that's not what "vogue" is. it's a magazine that says, look, you want to be on the cover, it's not really real. we photoshop, air brush, do all those things. these two brands conflict. and the problem is, when that happens, you want to be on the cover, lena dunham in my view went along with it to be on the cover. and i think she's great. she's saying to her fans, i don't understand what all this is about. she does because that's not why they love her. >> it's not like it was a dramatic transformation she's unrecognizable. if you look at some of the before and after pictures, is it really so dramatically different? >> i think there's a controversy because not only do you have these photos in this magazine with this very self-assured woman. but you also know they're photo
8:19 am
shopped. and on the other hand, you have this website highlighting photoshopping and saying this is not right, we don't want it, she doesn't need it, but they paid money for the photos and they dissected the photos bit by bit and feels like possible body shaming and also feeling like maybe we're doing more harm than good. >> the other thing, first of all, she looks great. i've looked at both. and her brand is not going to take a hit in this way. she looks great either way. i just wish she would be up front and say, look. if she said if you want to see what i really look like, watch the series. the funny thing is this, the art to me is about they put feathers on her, had a pigeon thing, that's great. but when they shaved down her jaw and made her hips, that's not art. that's really saying we don't like the way you look and we're going to change it for the cover of "vogue." that's fashion, not her brand, in my opinion. either way, she's still a star. >> there was a time when people didn't necessarily know about photoshopping. they weren't aware of how much
8:20 am
retouching was done. maybe they didn't really look like these impossible to get images. now we do know about it. and aren't people buying magazines like "vogue" buying the fantasy? they're not buying a nature magazine. >> i see what you're saying. but the studies keep showing us that the more women and girls see these images that are perfect, the more body shaming we do, the more body bulldying as i call it and presenting an audience. and we don't want them to look at themselves and say, i'm not good enough. and if lena dunham's not good enough, how will i be good enough? >> she's a role model for everyone. >> and those are powerful images. good to have a conversation with you both. thank you. we send it over to carson. now to a new series here, "healthy wealthy wives," we take you to the top cities in the country when it comes to those places. craig melvin is here with more. >> good morning, carson daly.

9:01 am
screen actors guild awards, on saturday, we saw "american hustle" came out on top. they won for best cast. however at the producers' guild award last night, there was a first ever tie for the top prize in the awards history between "gravity" and "12 years a slave." who do you think will win? >> well, i was thinking "12 years a slave," but it's very interesting. and i think as we've seen over the last couple of years, there's the question of how the academy voters will go. if they're feeling it's important to give the honor to a socially important film versus more of a cotton candy type movie. the movie everyone wants to go see, which would be "american hustle." >> the fun movies. >> the fun movies. >> i do have to say, the best wig goes to "american hustle." >> of course. >> the best wigs and the best coats. >> best costumes. >> best costumes, "american
9:02 am
hustle." i'm a serious film watcher. >> that's an easy way to break it down, i think. yeah, it's hard to say. i think they're both such different films, "12 years a slave" to "american hustle" and so many in the categories, as well, it'll be hard to pick a winner in this case. i think a lot of people are just now starting to go to the neith theate theate theaters and watch these films. >> with a new baby, the movies aren't on our to do list. this afternoon, i think, my husband has the day off, we're going to try to see "american hustle." >> matinee? that's the way to do it, i think. well, another controversy that is brewing, i think, is -- well, by the way, we do have a poll. we do have a poll for you and the academy awards and who you think should win. 40% say "american hustle" should win, 40% say "12 years a slave." >> that surprises me a little
9:03 am
bit. "12 years a slave" i've heard is this incredible film. i guess that's close. >> 40/30. >> where the breakdown would be. today.com has a poll for best dressed at the s.a.g. awards. this is something we can weigh in more with the more educated approach to this. >> right. >> here's how people looked at some of what they viewed as the best dressed. amy adams came in third. >> look at that. >> cobalt blue, asymmetrical. >> the retro hair, i think that's what you call that. >> i like she's channeling her character a little bit. >> and with the red hair to wear the bright colors. i love it. >> and take a look at jennifer lawrence, she came in number two with all of you, our viewers. great, sparkly. very different she actually was wearing white at the golden globes, which was a dress that i think a lot of people -- there's controversy over that dress, but i think this one's a clear winner. and number one, who seems to knock it out of the park when it comes to the red carpet these days is this newcomer lupita
9:04 am
nyongo. >> kerry washington, she wore the crop top. i like it a lot. i have to say, i think there are some people that question, i think it's great. >> i think it's great. >> got the belly, show the belly. >> i, myself, didn't look the best. my belly wasn't like that. that's what we call a beautiful belly. >> you looked pretty awesome. >> that's nice and generous of you, but i will say that i don't know i could have worn a crop top. even know, not sure -- my sister, she's got abs of steel. you probably could. >> no, you will not catch me dead wearing a crop top. i will not. not even at the gym where you might expect -- >> if you wear it at the gym and jump up and down and see that stomach, not a good motivator.
9:05 am
>> other things in the crop top, too. depends on what you're aiming for at the gym. trying to meet someone or get some abs? >> i'm trying to get some abs and looking at my stomach bounce is not good motivation. >> no. >> here's a little controversy brewing. you heard about this, juan pablo, the star of the latest season of "the bachelor" apologizing for controversial comments he made in regards to gays. an interview with the website, juan pablo was asked if it would be a good idea to have a gay or bisexual bachelor. here's how he responded. take a listen. >> no. >> why not? >> just because i respect them, but honestly, i don't think it's a good example for kids to watch that on tv. it seems to me, you know, and i don't know if i'm mistaken or not. i met great -- i have a lot of friends like that. but they're more pervert in a sense. >> producers called the comments
9:06 am
thoughtless and insensitive. he's posted an apology on facebook writing "pervert" wasn't what he meant. english is my second language and sometimes i use the wrong words to express myself. was it lost in translation? >> what do you think? >> i think it's very hard in latin and south america to, you know, it's a hard culture when it comes to gays and lesbians. it still is. and i think he doesn't understand -- >> i'm glad he apologized. >> he's meeting with -- he's also meeting with gays and lesbians, working with g.l.a.d. to try to address the issue head on. >> which is good. i wonder if it'll affect the show with the roses, you know. if it affects it. someone very funny on twitter saying he didn't go for gay relationships but he believes finding a wife with 22
9:07 am
actresses, aspiring actresses. >> they said you're the last person to make moral judgments on people, you're dating 25 women at the same time. >> exactly. that was it. i don't know. >> there you go. >> i think that person probably spoke it, said it best. >> did he make the decision? i don't know. here's an interesting story on the "huffington post" website. why do i wake up minutes before my alarm clock goes off? you were waking up -- >> it happens to me every single morning early morning and i wear contacts so i can't see everything, i'm always like, henry, what time is it? what time is it? >> you wake your poor husband up? >> i can't see. put on my glasses and look up at the clock? >> maybe. yes. most people do. >> henry, what time is it. last night he was like, it's just 11:30. >> well, i tried because my husband -- he will always -- he gets on my case, for 20 years i've been waking up at these awful hours. i learned, put everything in the
9:08 am
bathroom, leave everything there and get myself ready quietly and tiptoe. and if i put my shoes on, take your shoes off! you're waking the whole house up. >> this morning, henry was like, don't turn on the light, you don't want to wake up the baby. >> shower in the dark? we don't want to inconvenience you. >> when you have a newborn. >> oh, that's true. >> you walk around like you're on egg shells. >> luckily our baby can sleep through the lights. the door's closed, she's not that light sensitive, thank goodness. >> sound sensitive. they sleep through anything at that age. >> she does. >> sure do. but apparently, studies show we do start waking ourselves up throughout -- as we know we're going to get closer to the hour of wake-up time because they say your stress hormones are preparing your body for that moment. >> i must have been highly stressed last night. >> different hours. >> different hours. >> coming to do something different today. >> exactly. nervous. but it was constantly waking up and, henry, what time is it? >> your poor henry.
9:09 am
well, take your pick at the grammys. as you know, we've been partnering again with "usa today" for your pick. we started making our predictions, started with the golden globes. al, willie and myself have answered three questions about next sunday's grammy awards. and we wanted to first have you all weigh in on who we think will give the best performance. and here's how we broke it down. i picked "imagine dragons. al picked bruno mars. >> willie likes this. snoop lion and stephen colbert. >> they always do these mash-up performances. like the last groups or the last people you expect to see paired together is usually where you see them. so snoop dogg is nominated and stephen colbert nominated in the spoken word category. usa today is going with daft
9:10 am
punk and pharrell. who will be the night's big winner? i think this is clear, from my point of view macklemore and lewis. al and willie say justin timberlake who is also what i would say but i was told pick somebody else. but "usa today" is going along with me. macklemore and lewis. what do you think? >> i don't know. i need to do the research. but maybe macklemore. he's been talked about this year. >> important music, as well. >> exactly. >> about important things. but justin timberlake -- >> and who will wear the most outrageous outfit? and i picked -- she's not nominated, but i picked miley because if she's going to be there, she's going to show up wearing something or not wearing something we're all going to be talking about. >> totally.
9:11 am
>> al picked pink and rihanna. the ladies will square off and we'll see who wins that round. willie is going kanye. which i would have to agree with that. and i think he also -- willie said as "usa today" daft punk. they do wear the motorcycle helmets. >> i kind of agree with you. you got miley there, it's going to be crazy. >> maybe the foam finger? all right. let's get a check of the weather. maybe that's all she'll wear. >> i hope that's not all she wears. maybe we shouldn't be watching. >> exactly. dylan has our forecast. dylan. >> i'm going with miley cyrus for craziest outfit, i think. but we are looking at snow showers through parts of the midwest and northeast through the day today. we have this dip in the jet stream. and right along this dip, we have these areas of low pressure that start to develop. these are a little -- big clipper systems that are moving through. and they are producing some
9:12 am
